TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to William Henry Wesley, Royal Astronomical Society
Date13 July 1900
DescriptionBy regulation six of the regulations adopted in February 1899 for the publication of the eclipse observations, it was laid down that the proceedings of the Joint Meeting of the two Societies for the discussion of the preliminary accounts of observations should be published identically in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society' and the Royal Astronomical Society's 'Monthly Notices'. A provison follows for the subsequent publication of any observers accounts which are not prepared in time for the meeting.

Has presently received only two of the accounts read at the meeting and, as it is intended that they should all be published together, Harrison is anxious to put them in hand before going away. Would be much obliged if Wesley can procure him the reports of the other observers and let him know the number of copies required for the 'Monthly Notices'.
